  1. I just saw your Brooklyn Library presentation on CSpan. Wonderful! Enlightening, inspiring. This is important history, and you’ve done a remarkable job of presenting it. Marina writes on her Website about “crossing over.” I think this book for young people will cross over quite readily to adults who need to know this history, as well. It was also refreshing to see a program on CSpan that involved young readers! Congratulations to you both and best wishes for all your future endeavors,
